Funny I should come across this thread... I saw something like you're describing last night (saturday), only I'm in Canada. I was outside with a few
friends between 10 and 11 and I was looking up at the sky trying to gauge if it was going to rain again (it had been pouring all day). I noticed a
"star" that was moving straight across the sky (heading towards the north)... it was around the size of a star (though slightly bigger and
brighter), same colouring, same distance away, etc. I yelled at my friends to come take a look as well.
It only lasted about 25 seconds... we watched it until it went behind a small cloud and didn't come back out the other side. At first, we thought
airplane, but there was no flashing lights, no noise, plus, it looked way, way too high to be a plane. Like you, we knew it was not a shooting star or
meteor (we see many up here) and this was moving way too slow. My next thought was it was a satellite... they look very similar to stars. Could what I
saw have been the ISS as well?
Even if the ISS isn't what we saw, it's pretty neat that we saw what might be the same thing, around the same time, in two different countries.
It's a small world afterall.
